3D “Swan Lake” in Theaters on March 20

posted by Nell Minow

Audiences across the country will have a chance to watch Matthew Bourne’s critically acclaimed re-interpretation of one of ballet’s classic stories, Swan Lake in 3D, shown exclusively in RealD™ 3D, in select theaters on Tuesday, March 20 at 7:30 p.m. local time. Perhaps best-known for replacing the traditional female corps de ballet with a menacing male ensemble, Swan Lake in 3D was pre-recorded at Sadler’s Wells, London in 2011 with a stellar cast including the magnificent Richard Winsor as the lead Swan/Stranger, Dominic North as The Prince and Nina Goldman as The Queen. Edgy and dramatic, Bourne’s Swan Lake tells the eternal story of tragic and forbidden love with dynamic, modern day flair, making this production a one-of-a-kind experience for ballet and performing arts fans alike.

    Outstanding new choreography, superb dancing. A really new ballet experience.
    HOWEVER it was done with dim lighting for a night time atmosphere which detracted from the enjoyment.
    Perhaps the 3D glasses are partly the problem.
    The first 20 to 30 mins of the movie were very dull and boring and a great shock if you were not aware that this movie choreography was totally new and untraditional.
    I was ready to walk out of the cinema it was so dull.
    The all male corps de ballet dancing and choreography was extremely clever and dancing was superb

How Do Movies Show Time Passing?
Someone once said that movies are "pieces of time." A few take place in "real time." Alfred Hitchcock's experiment, "Rope," unfolds in just the time it takes us to watch it, all in what appears to be one seamless shot. But others take place over days, weeks, years, even generations. Slavko Vorkap

Boring TV Makes You Fat
A new study finds that boring television leads to mindless snacking and that leads to putting on pounds. So, watch programs that excite and engage you. Or, if the show is boring, turn off the television.

Switched at Birth and the End of Life
I'm a big fan of ABC Family's Switched at Birth and have appreciated its complicated characters, honest and heartfelt relationships, and compelling storylines, as well as its unprecedented, in-depth portrayal of the deaf community. Last week's episode may have been the all-time best (SPOILER ALERT)

Wish I Was Here
My intention was to review Zach Braff's new film without mentioning the controversy he stirred up in funding it via Kickstarter.  My view was that what mattered was the movie itself, and the kerfluffle over how it was all paid for was beside the point.  But it turns out that it is the point.  "Sc
